Egypt in Sheol

17 In the twelfth year,a on the fifteenth [day] of the month, the word of the Lord came to me: 18 "Son of man, wail over the hordes of Egypt and bring Egypt and the daughters of mighty nations down to the underworld,b [to be] with those who descend to the Pit:c 19 Whom do you surpass in loveliness? Go down and be laid to rest with the uncircumcised! 20 They will fall among those slain by the sword. A sword is appointed! They drag her and all her hordes away. 21 Warrior leaders will speak from the middle of Sheol about himd and his allies: They have come down; the uncircumcised lie slain by the sword.e 22 Assyria is there with all her company; her graves are all around her. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword. 23 Her graves are set in the deepest regions of the Pit, and her company is all around her burial place. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword- they who [once] spread terror in the land of the living. 24 Elamf is there with all her hordes around her grave. All of them are slain, fallen by the sword- they who went down to the underworldg uncircumcised, who [once] spread their terror in the land of the living. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit. 25 Among the slain they prepare a resting place for Elam with all her hordes. Her graves are all around her. All of them are uncircumcised, slain by the sword, although their terror was [once] spread in the land of the living. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit. They are placed among the slain. 26 Meshech and Tubalhiare there, with all their hordes. Their graves are all around them. All of them are uncircumcised, slain by the sword, although their terror was [once] spread in the land of the living. 27 They doj not lie down with the fallen warriors of the uncircumcised,k who went down to Sheol with their weapons of war, whose swords were placed under their heads. The punishment for their sins rested on their bones, although the terror of [these] warriors was [once] in the land of the living. 28 But you will be shattered and will lie down among the uncircumcised, with those slain by the sword.l 29 Edomm is there, her kings and all her princes, who, despite their strength, have been placed among those slain by the sword. They lie down with the uncircumcised, with those who descend to the Pit. 30 All the leaders of the northn and all the Sidonianso are there. They went down in shame with the slain, despite the terror their strength inspired. They lie down uncircumcised with those slain by the sword. They bear their disgrace with those who descend to the Pit. 31 Pharaoh will see them and be comfortedp over all his hordes- Pharaoh and all his army, slain by the sword.
